Yeah, Tom started a CM6 port, but ran into the same problem as a lot of other ports and had serious RIL problems.

This sounds too good to be true, but still wondering Cyanogen mod 7 will be based by the AOSP version 2.3 right?

Yeah CM7 is based on 2.3... We won't get ports of any other roms until we get RIL working properly.

On a side note where is your username from?

Sure, UK blade is not 003Z blade, and for UK blade there is no official froyo, so there cannot be official kernel source. Anyways, why do you need an other kernel source? This one seems okay, considering flb and kk could build very nice froyos on top of that.

Because there are still many RIL lib problems, the chinese and the japanese blades are pretty different to our blades.

What RIL problems do we have?

I don't see any RIL problems on my Froyo Blade, so what is the showstopper for CM7 or another 2.3 ginger builds?

The RIL problems have nothing to do with kernel source (I don't know why I bother repeating this, no one listens).

:D sorry. Could you explain then why we are not able to get special ROMs? Like CM or MIUI.

We were listening. (Or at least I was). From what I gleamed from your posts : Android's Radio Interface Layer (RIL) provides an abstraction layer between Android telephony services (android.telephony) and radio hardware. You can see from the diagram that the Kernel and the RIL are quite separate.

telephony.gif

While the Kernel is open-source large parts of Android can be modified without releasing source or information. I think from reading normally the hardware customisation is done only in the vendor RIL (system/libs/libril_vendor.so) but on the Blade for some reason ZTE have modified the telephony framework (java/android/telephony). This makes telephony and RIL interfaces for the Blade different to AOSP used by CM.

If we could work out why and how they changed the telephony framework then we could modify AOSP but that is a difficult task unless ZTE developers give us the information.

Is that right?

I'd be curious to know more details about how you know the telephony framework has changed? (i.e. things just don't compile?)

That sounds about right from what I've gleamed from Tom as well. I'm sure he tried another branch also rather than AOSP and still had problems.

Had anyone investigated qcrilhook.jar and qcnvitems.jar, maybe the changes to the framework are minimal and simply call through to those jars?
